    I remember I managed to get NAVIGATION agaiin after 2.1 in pre- before with a few instructions. I'm sure you can do the same on ur frankenpre2 no?

    No, it's not there, and I was under the impression that it wouldn't work. On the WebOS 2 Upgrade instructions (WebOS 2 Upgrade - WebOS Internals), it says this:

    Be aware that there is no publicly available solution for Sprint Navigation or Sprint PRL Update for this procedure. If you depend on either of those things, you should not upgrade to webOS 2.x

    If rigo0523 was able to get it working under 2.1, this is news to me. Perhaps I should try it out...

    yes I had 2.1 on my pre- before and I would not doctor it if I knew I couldn't get my NAVIGATION. I forgot where the link is. Let me look for it

    I just tried it, and holy crap it works!!! To reiterate, I now have Sprint Navigation (and also Amazon MP3) working on my Sprint FrankenPre2. Thanks for the tip! Man, I love this community...

    I just finished mine last night, it was a painful night of things not working like they said they would and then things just fell into place. I got it working, I got the Sprint NAV working, I have the data working, flash working and the night ended up being worth it as I have my Pre2 running on the S Network and things are freaking quick on this phone!!!

    NO MORE TO MANY CARDS ERROR!

    I also donated money to those developers that put together the tools needed and recommend others that successfully switched theirs to do the same to help out those that have helped us!

    Well stumble #1 was finding a T5 screwdriver...I would have thought Radio Shack would have one, but the lowest they went was T6, but found a Husky kit @ HopeDepot for $6. The hardware swap, no problems with it. Stumble #2-#11 was the software, that was the frustrating part but got it finally and glad that I got it working. Definately allot of reboots for sure!

    My battery life is freaking unreal! Its near the end of the workday and I've got 78% of my battery life left! I've had WiFi on most of the day and I'm very very happy that I'm not having to charge it on the way home like I normally do to make it till the end of the night. Like others have said, its like a brand new toy!

    The roaming list includes newly added or removed towers.Sprint keeps upgrading or adding towers. I might not be able to update them on my phone without PRL.

    Haven't been in my car again until this morning, and I finally got a chance to test out Sprint Nav... I'm going to say that it works better than it ever did on my Pre-. The GPS seems to acquire quicker. Actually, I avoided using Nav on my old Pre- because it was so unreliable in getting a GPS lock. Maybe I just had a bad Pre, I don't know. But I read someone else in this forum observing a difference in Pre 2 GPS performance. Man, this phone just ain't lettin me down!

    Ok so it's confirmed that Sprint Nav works on a franken pre 2.

    Now other sprint apps I'm interested in.
    - free tether / mobile hotspot - a must - does this work?

    Also nice to haves
    - Sprint TV
    - Sprint radio

    Will these still work? I don't use it a lot but it's nice to have them.

    Oh and most important of all, NASCAR app. Ok, I kid... I kid...
